Our Baobab Fruit Powder is fair trade and sustainable, from organically certified growers.

Living for a thousand years or more, baobabs dominate parts of the African landscape with their root-like branches and massive trunks that can reach 25 metres or more in circumference.

Baobab not only offers a unique taste of Africa, it can also provide life-changing income to millions of poor rural people in Southern Africa.

By harvesting baobab, which is abundant in Southern Africa, these people can substantially increase their income at no cost to themselves. This helps them pay for family healthcare and their children’s education as well as household necessities.

Nutritional Properties

High Vitamin C content
The Baobab fruit is known for its high content of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C). In particular, the pulp can provide up to 300 mg of vitamin per 100 g, a quantity equal to about six times that contained in an orange. Ascorbic acid plays an extremely important role from both a nutritional and therapeutic point of view. For a long time known for its ability to prevent scurvy, vitamin C finds more and more significant use, because of its antioxidant properties and its ability to protect the organism against harm induced by free radicals. The fruit also contains appreciable quantities of other essential vitamins, such as thiamine (vitamin B1) and riboflavin (vitamin B2), essential for optimal development of the organism and for maintaining cellular integrity of the nerves, skin and ocular epithelia, and niacin (vitamin PP or B3), important to regulate many metabolic functions

Good source of Calcium

Good source of Iron
Incremet of HB and Serum Ferritin

Source of Nutrients
Furthermore, the fruit contributes to the injection of some essential minerals and essential fatty acids. In fact, 100 g of pulp contains an average of 293 mg of calcium, 2.31 mg of potassium, 96-118 mg of phosphor and alpha-linolenic acid (27 mg of acid per gram of dry product).
The characteristic sourish taste of the pulp is due to the presence of organic acids, such as citric acid, tartaric acid, malic acid and succinic acid.

Antioxidant activity
Recent studies  have shown that Baobab fruit has a marked antioxidant capacity, both water-soluble and fat-soluble, preventing and combating the formation of free radicals

Dietary Fibres and Prebiotic activity
Baobab fruit pulp supplies a quantity of soluble (22.54%) and insoluble (22.04%) fibres which can reach up to about 45 grams per 100 grams of product. Dietary fibre has by now been established as an important component of our diet, as it can affect manifold aspects of the digestive physiology. Frequent consumption of dietary fibre associated with a diet rich in vegetables, cereals and fruit has been related to a reduction of the risk of onset of neoplasia of the digestive system, in particular colon-rectal cancer. The intake of dietary fibres by the Italian population is on average 21 g/day (of which about 1/3 soluble) with variations ranging between 18 g/day in the northern regions and 22 g/day in the central-southern regions. The ideal level of dietary fibre intake has not been defined, but it is now commonly accepted that fibres are an essential part of a healthy and balanced diet. A diet of foods rich in fibres has also been related to a reduction in the risk of developing various organic disorders, such as constipation and overweight. Insoluble fibres are not assimilated by the intestine and improve the intestinal passage thanks to their ability to increase the faecal mass and stimulate peristalsis. They are mainly used to combat constipation and induce a sense of fullness, which can be exploited in a low-calorie diet. Moreover, Baobab fruit pulp due to its high fibre content (soluble and insoluble) would appear to have interesting properties, at least in vitro, for stimulating growth of bacterial cultures of the intestinal microflora

The study carried out on the soluble fibres contained in Baobab fruit pulp, allow hypothesizing their use as prebiotic, i.e. an indigestible dietary ingredient which on the level of the large intestine selectively stimulates the growth and/or metabolic activity of a limited number of microbic groups, important for maintaining the various functions of the human organism.
Studies carried out highlight that the water-soluble fraction of the fruit pulp has stimulating effects on the growth of lactobacilli and bifidumbacteria, such as
